Re: Lenz 100 out of stock everywhere

Are you looking for just the LZV100 or the Lenz Set 100? Note the Lenz Set 100 does not include the TR150 (recommended) transformer I have managed to find three Lenz Set 100, the websites claim to have stock, but vastly more than what I paid Sharp Models £325 Rails Of Sheffield £297 EDM Models £296

Re: Fixing N gauge track.

I've soldered my power droppers to the undersides of the rail joiners, not to the rails themselves. I soldered to the rails when I had OO gauge, but it was too easy, even in that gauge, to melt adjacent sleepers when doing so. Solution here is to spread the sleepers away from the area being soldere...

Re: Fixing N gauge track.

Re: East coast v cumbrian coast

Passenger flows vary by time of day, day of week, and so on Rowdy passengers are very common on later trains at weekends However, you can't really compare a regional train against an inter-city train, the passenger types are typically different Given a choice of travelling between London and Scotlan...

Re: Sealink

That's a really poor and slightly inaccurate item description Yes, they were intended for the loco hauled services between Glasgow and Stranraer, but this was setup by ScotRail (which had just been formed) These Mark 1 coaches were withdrawn after just 2 years use, replaced by other coaches which we...

Re: Unusual sign at Appleford station

Most service routes have a regular stopping pattern
Culham is completely irregular, and due to the distance between stations can easily be overlooked
